A dramatic rescue was launched close to Cabo Roig beach Costa Blanca Saturday afternoon.
The dramatic scenes unfolded when a pensioner fell through a hole in the coastal footpath, just above La Caletta beach.
A Woman said to be Scandinavian, was walking down a path with her husband, having first moved a no-entry barrier to gain access.
Thankfully some undergrowth stopped her falling further, though she was trapped and unable to move.
Her husband who was with her immediately called the emergency services, with two Torrevieja-based fire appliances, a local ambulance and Paramedics attending the incident, as well as the Local Police.
Once the injured woman was stabilised, she was transferred by ambulance to Torrevieja hospital for further treatment.
Storms recently had damaged the footpath hence the No entry sign.
